Gutierrez: Rahm Emanuel Isn't "A Positive Influence" On Immigration Debate

On WFLD's Fox Chicago Sunday this past weekend, Rep. Luis Gutierrez once again exhibited his disdain for White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel.  When asked about the Obama adminstration's lack of action on immigration reform, Gutierrez said: "I don't think that Rahm Emanuel is a positive influence on the immigration debate. I don't think he sees it as a core value of the Democratic Party or a necessity that the American people need to be active on."  Watch it:

Today, Gutierrez and Rep. Mike Quigley will be announcing their support for including same-sex couples in any immigration reform legislation at the national level.
